Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine

Have you felt sluggish or low on energy? Do you frequently experience digestive upset, chronic pain and other health problems? It’s time to get to the bottom of your problems. Motus Integrative Health recognizes the impact of wellness on your life, and we strive to help you boost your well-being from every angle. 

Functionalized medicine is a wellness approach founded on your unique needs. It integrates your personal health history with a scientific foundation to find and eliminate the root causes of your illness, which may include stress, poor diet, allergens, environment and many more. Through this approach, patients can achieve a happy, healthier life. If you’re interested, speak with Dr. Robert Newhalfen. He has extensive experience in clinical care and can help you uncover the source of your health problems.

What is Functional Medicine?

Anyone with chronic pain can attest to the difficulty of finding a suitable treatment. Many times, you’re given options that simply mask the pain and symptoms, rather than address the root cause of your ailment. Functional medicine intends to determine why you feel unwell so you can take action and improve your lifestyle. Rather than focusing on treatment alone, functional medicine approaches wellness from all angles. 

We listen to your concerns, symptoms and unique health history, and we use these answers to aid us in building a customized treatment plan. Using a combination of physical exams and diagnostic tests, we identify the triggers that are affecting your health. Functional medicine focuses on treating the underlying causes of illness rather than symptoms alone. It recognizes biochemical individuality within patients and utilizes a preventative approach to maximize wellness both now and into the future. 

Common triggers include: 

  • Unidentified allergies
  • Food intolerances
  • Inflammation
  • Inadequate nutrition
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Stress

There are a number of causes, both external and internal, that contribute to illness. While some of these may be out of your control, functional medicine provides pathways to lifestyle, behavioral and dietary intervention. Through our individualized approach to wellness, we assist clients no matter what health issues they are facing. 

What to Expect From Our Functional Medicine Program

Once we’ve determined the root cause of bodily discomfort and pain, the next step is to build a custom treatment plan that targets the triggers causing poor health. We often recommend chiropractic care for pain, nutritional counseling to improve diet as well as physical massage. Depending on your symptoms and the specific health issues you developed, we may recommend a single treatment or a combination to most adequately address your health complications.  We also partner with other great healthcare providers for lab work, cryotherapy, float therapy, and other services for your overall well-being.  

Functional medicine works on the basis that addressing the root cause will solve the issues. It begins with nutrition, as food is in many ways the foundation of our health, and expands out to lifestyle and wellness interventions to help you improve your health. 

We recommend functional medicine to patients facing a chronic health condition of any kind. We commonly assist patients experiencing: 

  • Allergies
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Chronic Pain
  • Diabetes
  • Digestive Disorders
  • Fatigue Including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
